Thesis, antithesis, synthesis II

Vietnam offers repair services for Indian warships.

After a meeting with Defence Minister A K Antony in Hanoi, his counterpart Gen Phung Quang Thanh welcomed more port calls by the Indian Navy and offered maintenance and repair facilities for warships at Vietnam ports.

This would extend a major advantage to the Indian Navy that has been scaling up operations in the region, specially in the South China Sea where several patrols have been carried out in the past few years.

I understand that the Vietnamese have asked for the dimensional details of HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, so they can provide service to them once they've been transferred to Indian control.

Not really, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did.

We can only hope. The Indians are more likely by far to put them to good use.
